Abstract

Art in the Global Present presents a fascinating collection of essays that together reveal how art is currently navigating a globalised world. It addresses social issues such as the impact of migration, the ‘war on terror’ and the global financial crisis, and questions the transformations produced by new forms of flexible labour and the digital revolution. Through examining the resistance to the politics of globalisation in contemporary art, presenting the construction of an alternative geography of the imagination and reflecting on art’s capacity to express the widest possible sense of being, this book explores the worlds that artists make when they make art. A multifaceted perspective on the complexity of these issues is reached through the words of a diverse range of art practitioners and commentators, including acclaimed artists Lucy Orta, Callum Morton, Danae Stratou and the collective Postcommodity, international curators Hou Hanru, Cuauhtémoc Medina, Ranjit Hoskote and Linda Marie Walker and art critics, academics, writers and theorists Jean Burgess, Paul Carter, Barbara Creed, Geert Lovink, Scott McQuire, Nikos Papastergiadis, Gerald Raunig and Jan Verwoert.

Abstract

ven if they are contradictory, the different senses give thickness and subtlety to the concept.            The journey of a notion in time and space then also contributes to broadening our understanding of a cultural history between universality and identity within the artistic diversity that characterizes modern Europe.

Abstract

LexArt. The words of painting is a dictionary of terms and concepts, which, from the artistic literature, in a synchronous approach of discourse and artistic practice, describe the painting as it is practiced in France, Germany, England and the Netherlands in the 17th and 18th centuries. These writings constitute the mental, intellectual and visual universe, which makes it possible to better apprehend the work of art, and shape the eye to better see. The purpose of this book is to highlight the stakes of uses resituated in different contexts in time and space, in a confrontation of ways of thinking, painting and watching. Seventy-seven essays address nearly two hundred and fifty notions. The articles respond to each other, and form an ensemble which, behind the alphabetical order of the dictionary, draws the contours of a new reading of the painting seen through the eye of the painter and the eye of the spectator. Indeed, the "speaking painting" does not only introduce the viewer into the painter's studio by showing him the "how to do", he introduces him into the painting itself, shows him what to see and how see.
